Black Sash calls for R350 SRD grant to be increased, enhanced, and expanded

Black Sash, a human rights organization, has demanded that the R350 SRD SASSA stipend be increased, enhanced, and expanded.
The organization has been at the forefront of calls for the R350 SRD to be extended beyond the initial deadline and for a universal Basic Income Grant (BIG), together with other organizations.
Poverty, inequality and unemployment are not mere challenges, they are the most profound crisis confronting democratic South Africa according to Back Sash.

“It is crucial that the government addresses the glaring gaps in the current social assistance framework for the unemployed. In line with this, a permanent Basic Income Support programme for those aged 18 to 59 years with little to no income must be implemented before the SRD Grant is terminated in March 2023.
“Poverty, inequality and unemployment are not mere challenges, they are the most profound crisis confronting democratic South Africa.  A comprehensive response to our socio-economic crisis should include effectively implementing job creation programmes, creating an enabling environment for job creation to flourish, and providing quality basic services in conjunction with permanent basic income support.”
